Anthony Fauci was asked his thoughts about the effectiveness of the anti-malaria drug in treating coronavirus patients, and Trump interrupted before the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases could answer.
“He’s answered that question 15 times,” said Trump, who had spent much of the news conference touting the drug's potential.
Earlier in the day, Fauci did answer a question about hydroxychloroquine when he was on CBS's "Face the Nation."
“The data are really, just, at best, suggestive,” he said. “There have been cases that show there may be an effect and there are others to show there's no effect. So, I think in terms of science, I don't think we could definitively say it works.”
